Boot Errors using CD

Hi all,
I'm running into some issues trying to install Mandrake 9.1 from a CD - Everything seems to go OK ut until the Boot :
I get the following messages:

Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM :
ISOLINUX 1.76 Mandrake Linux isolinux: 01424C9F

The machine I'm using as a target doesn't have a floppy drive on it, though I can attach one. Does anyone know what causes the above message?

Thanks in advance.

It may be that the boot image on your CD is corrupt. Did you do an MD5SUM (aka checksum) on it after you downloaded it, to ensure that it was intact? -- J.W.
